What a place! A little word for warning, there's a car park out the back with plenty of space if street parking isn't your thing. Don't worry if you go through the back door and its unmanned, I thought I wasn't supposed to go through there was apparently you can! The service was exquisite, an empty plate or glass was... More

The restaurant has recently undergone renovations, which was quite obvious. It was really nice inside, definitely an upgrade from what it previously was. However, the food is average and extremely overpriced. I mean the food's not bad but to pay $26 for 2 slices of prosciutto and a bit of cheese is a bit ridiculous. The staff were helpful, although...

Travel to Smithfield. It is worth it for consistently well executed Italian fare, made and served by professionals who care that you enjoy your meal. The menu is vast and everything we have had over numerous meals has been very good. It is often the little things that count. These include knowledgable staff, quality ingredients (- even the gorgonzola cheese... More

I have been eating there for several years as well as ordering takeaway pizza, I have found that although more often than not the food is delicious it is always varied. My main issue with Candelori's is the inconsistency with each dish. I get the same pizza once a week and it is different every single time. Either the base... More

Have been dining at Candelori’s for many years now and have never been disappointed. We expect to pay a bit more for the little extras-wonderful décor and ambience in the new renovation, diverse menu, excellent bar, table linen etc. Their Garlic prawns are the best around and soaked up with their beautiful oven baked bread-divine! Have had many dishes on... More

We dined here recently to celebrate my Grandaughter's High School graduation. The food was delicious, albeit a bit expensive. I have dined here before and previously have been happy with the service. This time, however, I found the service to be quite slow and not particularly friendly. At the time of booking, I told them that we were there for... More

We went to Candelori's to celebrate my mother in laws birthday, there was 6 of us for an 8pm booking. The decor was nice and the open kitchen interesting. The service was terrible and the food was average, not at all reflecting the exorbitant price. Would not recommend to anyone. I am not usually one to complain about food places... More
